Lavender, purple, light pink, white, blue, lavender/blue and sometimes pale yellow.

For the last three, I like to add bright yellow, orange and red in the veggie garden :)

Red

Cool color garden (Hydrangeas, lilac, lobelias, delphinium, etc.)

Blue
Lavender
White
Cool Pinks

And of course healthy green foliage and rocks in earth tones spaced throughout.
